Course summary

Manufacturing engineering is a fascinating subject. Look around at all the things you are surrounded by – everything that you use, wear, and eat was brought to you by the skills of manufacturing engineers. This BEng (Hons) Advanced Manufacturing degree, located at our Barrow-in-Furness campus is a new and modern course that blends the technical focus of engineering with environmental awareness, management principles and leading-edge IT skills. You will learn how to develop engineering solutions to manufacturing problems using new technologies through innovation and creativity. Course Overview The BEng (Hons) Advanced Manufacturing degree was designed in collaboration with BAE Systems to embed all the employability skills and commercial awareness you will need to launch a successful career. With links to the advanced manufacturing cluster of engineering industries located around Barrow-in-Furness, you will gain practical experience of manufacturing engineering whilst learning how technical engineering is applied in the real world from day one. Manufacturing is a fast-paced and constantly developing global industry. To ensure that your degree is future-proof, we have developed the course to meet the Engineering Council’s most recent ‘Accreditation of Higher Education’ standard (AHEP4). In between years two and three of this degree, you will have the option of taking a year in industry. This is a year-long period of paid work experience that does not count towards your final degree classification. If chosen, this is an excellent opportunity to apply your learning to the world of work, gain industrial training and develop connections within the industry. On this course you will...

  • Develop the technical knowledge, and commercial and social awareness, to be ready for an exciting career in engineering.
